When I was a kid growing up on the farm, we always looked forward to Halloween so we could go Trick or Treating at the neighboring farms. And back then you didn’t get pre-packaged candy and candy bars. You got homemade treats. Treats like homemade taffy wrapped in wax paper, molasses popcorn balls, candy apples, brownies, fudge, peanut brittle, glazed pecans, Grandma’s HUGE tea cake cookies, and my favorite was homemade caramel corn in brown paper lunch sacks. What a treat that was!
When you grow up on a small cotton farm in North Eastern Arkansas, it's easy to see how cotton can run in the blood. Of course, back then, I couldn't wait to grow up and get out of those hot, dirty cotton fields. But now, looking back, I know that's where my love affair with cotton began.
To say the phrase, "If you build it, he will come" from the 1989 movie 'Field Of Dreams' was my inspiration to build a quilt shop/fabric store on our 2200 acre cattle ranch in the beautiful Ozark Mountains sounds crazy.....but it's true.
